Bethlehem, Thu 29.5.08, Afternoon
17:00, Bethlehem Crossing : Two long queues, extending outside the building. Inside, only two inspection stations were operating – the question is : why ? They claimed that they don’t have enough people. As usual, the Palestinians grumbled that it was very hot outside.
We asked who was in charge, and informed the soldiers that we were reporting the situation. Not more than a few minutes elapsed before two more positions were opened. The queue speeded up and then disappeared.
